3rd Tuesday of the Month

The Body Is Not an Apology Book Club

May 21-

The Body Keeps The Score

Brain,Mind, and Body

In the Healing of Trauma by Bessel A. Van Der Kolk, MD

Elliot BatTzedek of Big Blue Marble Bookstore and I started this bookclub in 2016.  Through reading and discussion of fiction and non-fiction related genre, we intend to support, educate, and share issues about body acceptance, spiritual growth, and loving ourselves to the fullest. (yes, pun intended!)  

We take our inspiration from The Body Is Not an Apology Movement (https://thebodyisnotanapology.com) an international radical self-acceptance movement started by Sonya Renee Taylor.  

The group is committed to cultivating global Radical Self Love and Body Empowerment that believes that discrimination, social inequality, and injustice are manifestations of our inability to make peace with the body, our own and others.
